Homicide detectives are investigating a shooting that left a man dead in Norwalk on Tuesday.

The incident was reported in an alley off Shoemaker Avenue, between the 13000 blocks of Rosecrans Avenue and Liggett Street, shortly before 2 p.m., said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Biddle.

Responding deputies found a Latino man in his 20s suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Biddle said he doesn’t believe the victim lived in the area where he was shot.

Detectives were combing the alley for evidence but hadn’t found much, according to Biddle.

“I’m not sure if there’s even any ballistic evidence at the crime scene,” the sergeant told KTLA. “We’re still searching; there’s nothing obvious.”

Investigators are still working to determine what led up to the fatal gunfire but believe it could be gang-related.

Authorities have yet to compile a suspect description but are working to identify any witnesses and determine whether surveillance cameras could have captured the shooting.
